About

Weddings with Reverend Jim Beidle

I am an experienced professional wedding officiant based in Arlington, Washington. Aware of the many details that go into planning your perfect wedding day, I take pains to make your ceremony planning easy, fun, and affordable. I believe you鈥檒l build your life on the memories you create as you stand together at the marriage altar. I am committed to helping you communicate your love through meaningful vows, entertaining your guests through a joyful celebration, and bringing you into a lifetime of happiness.

Experienced

As an ordained minister, I have performed weddings since 2012. Based on that experience, I鈥檝e assembled several wedding packages for every style of wedding you can imagine. From elopements through creative celebrations and resort destinations to your backyard. Whatever your vibe, you and I create precisely the ceremony you want to celebrate your love. It鈥檚 your ceremony - how do you imagine your wedding day?

Professional

There are many officiants who treat their calling as a hobby, with the casual attitude that sometimes entails. Yet your officiant is your guide to the legal and spiritual process of becoming married. Isn鈥檛 it important that they understand and comply with a legal and ethical standard to ensure your wedding goes without a hiccup?

As a professional officiant, I adhere to the rigid standards and the strong code of ethics chartered by the International Association of Professional Wedding Officiants - IAPWO. The IAPWO Code of Ethics includes key ideals of honesty, trustworthiness, respect, and non-discrimination. Regardless of your background, I promise to treat you fairly and spell out what I can and cannot do for you.

Mobile

Although I focus on offering services in Northwest Washington, I am ready to travel to you! I have married couples in three of Washington鈥檚 national parks, on whale watching tours, and at the beach. Wherever you want to tie the knot, I am ready to make it happen.

Rev. Jim was a breeze to work with, he's a gem

So glad we booked Rev. Jim for our Elopement Adventure. He was pleasant to work with and he made sure everything was explained thoroughly to us, from the beginning til the end. We had no doubts that getting him as our Officiant would make our day extra special, and he definitely delivered. He arrived at the venue early, and performed the ceremony with such grace. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for an Officiant in the PNW area.

Respectable Reverend

Jim helped us hold a wedding with a preparation period of shorter than one month. His professionalism convinced me that I am safeguarded for things that are not explicitly mentioned in the contract and it proved to be worth more than the price
